Very strange.... Yeah.. I think there is a major problem with the new update...so that's why they removed it...
Btw I rolled back to 18.104.22.168 and for now there are no BSOD but the maximum speed I can get in uTorrent is 1.5MB/s.. With the newest driver my speed was going up to 4MB/s
Now I tried to install 7.35.275.2 and I got a Setup Error : Error "Update.cpp 1189" has occured and Setup cannot continue...
O my god.....

Yes, that is sometimes a problem.
For some reason that Broadcom card doesn't like us throwing a bunch of drivers at it, and sometimes reports that error.
It's too bad users can't get the drivers directly from BCM but they only offer ethernet drivers.
We can only hope that Broadcom releases a newer driver for that model card and gives it to HP for distribution.

I updated to 7.35.299.0 and I will check for BSOD
I'm wondering if HP knows about the problematic adapters BCM43142...
There are tons of topics in this forum and in other forums too about problems connected with this adapter... Many people complain about connection drops, low signal and bsod...
Just search for BCM43142

Well if they don't, posting anything about it on this forum won't help.
This is a peer to peer forum. HP maintains no official presence here.
I encourage you, and anyone else to report the issue to the HP management team, who would be able to do something about it.
Give them links to posts such as this one, and the others you know about as documentation of the problem.
Then they can take it up with Broadcom.
They are pretty good about following up on inquiries/suggestions/problems.

You're very welcome.
Yes, with a desktop PC you have more options.
I use this dual band wireless adapter on all of my HP desktop PC's.
Works great! Never had a problem.
Changing out the wireless card in some of these newer notebooks is a problem, and normally, plugging in a USB wireless adapter is not an option. Who wants some big usb adapter sticking out from the side of a notebook?
1. On many models the wireless card is hard to get to.
2. A lot of these notebooks only come with one wireless antenna, and a dual band wlan card requires two antennas to work properly.
